  • Critic's Choice for March

    The annual international photography festival Miami Photo Fest returns this year. Hosted at The Moore Building (191 NE 40th St., Miami Design District, Florida 33137), the Miami Photo Fest 2019 (Feb 27th - Mar 3rd) is a cultural & educational photography festival featuring an array of workshops, exhibits, lecture panels, portfolio reviews, projections, and more. Among the world-renowned artist included in this edition: Antoine d'Agata, Roger Ballen, Andy Summers, and many more.

    Tout-Monde Festival opens this month (March 13 - 17). Hosted at several venues around the city (Koubek Center, Museum of Art and Design - MOAD, Perez Art Museum Miami - PAMM, The Wolfsonian, and the Little Haiti Cultural Center), and under the theme “Echo-Nature”, this second edition aims at deconstructing stereotypes of the Caribbean by exploring the deep characteristics and the essence of the Caribbean through different beings, shapes and environments.

    Carlos Estevez. Observable Observatories at Artscape Lab presents the most recent body of work of this Cuban-born, Miami-based artist. Deeply rooted in the notion of the Renaissance artist-engineer, Estevez exquisite drawings are a suggestive symbiosis between man and mechanics. Going through April 19, Observable Observatories is a commentary on surveillance and control in contemporary society.

    Opening on March 2nd at Mindy Solomon Gallery (8397 NE 2nd Ave., Little River), I Am My Story presents the work of four artists (Azikiwe Mohammad, Conrad Egyir, Hellen Gaudance, and Basil Kincaid) interested in the exploration of the storytelling and craftsmanship through different media. The Great Rift Valley, also known as The cradle of mankind, is the thread that guides this evocative show.

    Opening on March 17, CANDY: Hommage to Felix Gonzalez Torres at Pan American Art Projects (274 NE 67th St. Little River), is the most recent solo show of Jose Manuel Fors. Interested in the process of accumulation and memory, the exhibition is a measured yet poignant scrutiny on split identities.

    Running through March 29, the Annex (2930 NW 7th Ave. Allapattah, Fl. 33127) presents RCS 51-75 Exhibit, a multimedia group show featuring participants of Rocking Chair Sessions podcasts 51-75. Curated by BABA Collective, the RCS: Rocking Chair Sessions is a multimedia project engaged in the dialog within our Miami art community. Included in this second session: Alette Simmons-Jimenez, Judith Berk King, Roxana Barba, David Rohn, Sri Prabha, Amalia Caputo, Anja Marais, Gianna Riccardi, Jacqueline Gopie, Morel Doucet, Scott Brennan, Ana Mendez, Brookhart Jonquil, Kerry McLaney, Kiki Valdes, Jill Deupi, Maria Lino, Sarah Michelle Rupert, Sterling Rook, Yuneikys Villalonga, Regina Jestrow, Sandra Ramos, Pedro Wazzan, Tamara Despujols, and Mike Rivamonte.

    Open through April 6, LnS Gallery (2610 SW 28th Lane, Miami, FL, 33133) features Neighborhood Projects by Tim Buwalda. Inspired by the Golden Age of the automobile in America, the resulting photo-based realistic imagery creates an effective allegory of the current status of the American Dream.

    Opening on March 16 and on view through March 16, the HistoryMiami Museum (101 W. Flagler St. Downtown Miami), features Queer Community: A History of LGBTQ Communities. Curated by Julio Capó Jr, and in recognition of the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall rebellion, the show chronicles Miami‘s queer history over one hundred years, while sharing stories of love, repression, and activism.
